Artwork for Claire Vaughan
Perch and Carp in Ink
Bee bone china jug
I try and capture through art the beauty of nature chiefly insects, birds and fish! I draw the original in black ink, pencil and gouache for accuracy and an authentic feel.
Raising a smile. With so many people embracing nature again, I feel honoured to be able to draw from real life so that anyone can hold a piece of the natural world without harming the source. Transferring those drawings onto glassware, ceramics, textiles, jewellery and of course paper and cards, is an absolute joy.
Am delighted to have been awarded several awards from RHS.
